Meet Robert Macomber, February 16th

Meet Robert Macomber when he stops in to sign his next upcoming book, An Honorable War,  the 13th novel in The Honor Series.

About the book-

February, 1898. As tensions with Spain reach fever pitch and the press calls for an honorable war to liberate Cuba, Captain Peter Wake, U.S.N., returns to his clandestine past with an espionage mission deep inside Cuba. Then, moments after Wake departs USS Maine in Havana’s harbor and his mission is over, the ship explodes. In that instant, America and the world are changed forever.

Wake is soon in the Spanish-American War, commanding a squadron of misfit ships in a perilous operation on the Cuban coast. Facing overwhelming odds, he’ll have to use every ruthless skill

and Machiavellian trick learned in his thirty-five- year career. Can he carry out his orders, defeat the Spanish, save the lives of his men, and deal with the politics in Washington?

We won’t know until it’s over, but by then it may be too late ….
